Turning Points & Career Goals
At the beginning of the month, it’s all about your planet Mercury. Mercury is the planet of communication and has been retrograde or on go slow since May 10th. This can be a time when your plans change, things don’t always work out the way you expect them to and you have to be more adaptable and flexible than usual.
Mercury turns direct in Taurus and your travel and study sector on the 3rd. New information may come to light that helps you make progress in one of these key areas. It’s a good date to book a flight or trip or to sign up for a study course. This could prove to be a significant turning point.
Love too could be in the ascendancy and a reason to travel. This is because love planet Venus is in Taurus until the 23rd, enlivening your travel and study sector.
Then, on the 13th, Mercury moves back into Gemini, its other sign of rulership. Gemini rules your career and vocation, your future path and is the star sign at the peak of your horoscope.
This is not only about your career and vocation, also your status and reputation. You might be ready to launch a project, start a new job or take on a role of responsibility. Any plans that were halted or stalled last month could take off and fast.
The Sun remains in Gemini until the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Therefore, you’re wise to keep the impetus going at work and prioritise this area of your life. Plus on the 23rd, the planet of relating Venus joins the Sun & Mercury in Gemini.
Venus in Gemini is great for networking, team work and getting on the right side of people who count. Socialise with your work colleagues and do your bit to create a harmonious working environment.
Full Moon Vibes
There’s also a powerful Full Moon on the 14th cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. This axis represents the foundations of your horoscope, where you come from and where you’re heading. It influences the big decisions around work & home, past & future.
Full Moons are traditionally a time of emotion and often coincide with completion or culmination. You might be celebrating, perhaps a family anniversary or wedding.
Alternatively, you might be saying goodbye to someone close as they set off on an adventure. Or, there could be big news on or around this date.
You may find that events in your own life feel overwhelming. This Full Moon period could be especially emotional as the Sun squares Neptune in Pisces and your relationship sector, exact on the 16th. This may trigger a release, a letting go as Neptune can dissolve what it touches.
Illusion is a key Neptunian theme and you may have to work harder to discern what’s real and what’s not. Fantasy and illusion need to be analysed in the clear light of day. Use your earth sign instincts to know who to trust and who to avoid.
Money matters could pick up speed this month as you have the action planet Mars in Aries and your joint finance sector until early July. You may need to be more ambitious when it comes to earning money or sorting out a financial issue. Certainly, there’s a lot of heat in this sector of your horoscope.
This may be linked to what’s happening at work, especially if business is slow. Key dates are the 4th when Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius and your work and lifestyle sector, also the 27th when Mars and Saturn align. This could present you with the solution to an ongoing financial issue or problem.
It’s a month when you’re wise to engage actively with your life out in the big wide world. The stars are calling you to aim high and play big. The 20th could be exceptionally lucky for you and an ideal date to line up a key meeting or interview.
Friendship & Connections
Finally, there’s a shift in pace when the Sun enters Cancer on the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Cancer is a water sign and this is slower for you. It’s about reconnecting with your friends and enjoying simple pleasures. There needs to be a healthy balance in your life this month if you’re to feel well and fulfilled.
The New Moon on the 29th also falls in Cancer, an ideal date to make new friends or get together with old friends. One way or another, social connections could prove influential and comforting as the month comes to an end.
